Today starts the #E3 press conferences. @femfreq is doing our annual data analysis of the gender breakdown of announced games. Stay tuned!
In the first hour of #EAPLAY there have been 10 men on stage to 1 woman.

Apex Legends introduces a new female character with a trailer all about her father brought to you by the men who created her.

Cool. Cool cool cool.
Am I gonna have to learn how to play FIFA cause Volta looks pretty awesome #EAPLAY2019
Sorry what? EA is donating a million dollars to non profits working to end bullying & online harassment!?!?

Some facts:

- they didn't speak up during GamerGate at all
- @femfreq has been a non profit on the front lines of this issue for years constantly struggling with funding
Don't get me wrong, these big companies need to speak up & fund initiatives that end online harassment but those of us who were canaries in the coalmine, who sacrificed to make sure people recognized this dire problem, we are not remembered when it's politically safe to speak up
Final count of presenters on stage at #EAPLAY2019: 24 men and 4 women.

I'm excited that we now have five years of gender data coming out of #E3 which can help us chart trends in the industry over time.

This year we'll be releasing our data with @WIRED. Stay tuned!

Do you think this year is better or worse then previous years?
